Surgery Companion

The Surgery Companion contains information on your health condition and prepares you for your stay at the clinic.

Rehabilitation and social law aspects are also part of the program. 


A conscious diet starts with taking time for your nutrition. Part of that is grocery shopping and preparing. Food should bring you joy – so don’t overthink nutrients and calories. During the course of the program, Curalie provides you with a variety of information and advice. 


We know that working out is a challenge for you right now. This is why our therapists designed a gentle program tailored to your current needs. So you can prepare your body for surgery and, subsequently, the healing phase.


Relaxation techniques, such as breathing exercises or progressive muscle relaxation, help calm you down and reduce pain. 


Entspannungstechniken wie Atemtraining oder progressive Muskelentspannung unterstützen dich dabei, zur Ruhe zu kommen, und können darüber hinaus auch Schmerzen lindern.


Uns ist bewusst, dass Sport für dich gerade eine Herausforderung ist, deshalb haben unsere Therapeuten ein sanftes Trainingsprogramm entwickelt, das auf deine aktuellen Bedürfnisse abgestimmt ist. So bereitest du deinen Körper optimal auf die Operation und die anschließende Heilungsphase vor. Jede Übung wird im Video durch unsere Therapeuten angeleitet.
